HONORING GROUND HOG DAY -&- OF COURSE A BIG HUG
FOR THE 1 and ONLY ~ PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL!
{IS HE BLUSHING OR IS IT JUST THE COLD TEMPS}


THE 13 ARE IN THE GATE AND READY TO RUN


AWAY THEY GO IN THE ....
''ONLY THE SHADOW KNOWS'' STAKES



IT'S A FILLY TRIO + A COLT DUO OUT FOR A SHORT LEAD
DC-DUSTY ~ THUNDER CAT ~ PEEPTOAD ~ BLUNNY ~ REAL QUIET

TIGER DANCER -&- RUFFIAN ARE NEXT JUST A 1/2 LENGTH BACK
CIGARSHOP IS RIGHT AT THEIR TWIN TAILS
WITH ROAMIN & POST TIME MIKE NOW JOINING CIGARSHOP

TRAILING THE FIELD IN THE EARLY GOING ARE
CATALINA ~CRUZAN & EL PRADO


~~OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME~~


IT'S DEFENDING CHAMP, DUSTY -&- PEEPTOAD
NOW IN COMMAND OF THE LEAD

BACK 3 LENGTHS ARE CATALINA WITH A SUDDEN SURGE OF SPEED
JOINED BY BLUNNY ~ POST TIME MIKE ~ REAL QUIET + CATALINA

ANOTHER 5 LENGTHS BACK ARE CIGARSHOP ~ ROAMIN
THIS DUO ARE FOLLOWED BY TIGER DANCER

WAY FAR BACK IN THE EARLY GOING ARE
RUFFIAN ~ CRUZAN & EL PRADO


~~THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH~~


IT'S STILL DEFENDING 3-PEAT CHAMP, DUSTY ON HER WAY
TO A POSSIBLE HISTORICAL RECORD BREAKING EVENT
THE FRISKY FILLY IS NOW JOINED BY THE ''ENERGIZER-BLUNNY''
AS PEEPTOAD SUDDENLY SPOOKED AT SOMETHING
SHE 'THINKS' SHE SAW ON THE TRACK ~ ? ~ LOSING MOMENTUM

IT'S NOW ROAMIN ON THE MOVE EDGING EVER CLOSER TO
THE DUO LEADING THE WAY

CIGARSHOP, REAL QUIET, CATALINA & POST TIME MIKE ARE NEXT
STILL IN WITH A CHANCE AT SOME MONEY ~ BUT FOR RIGHT NOW~
'ONLY THE SHADOW KNOWS!'

CRUZAN IS TRYING TO MOVE UP BUT STILL STRUGGLING

IT'S A FRUSTRATED FINICKY FILLY FOURSOME FRETTING AT THE BACK
TIGER DANCER ~ THUNDER CAT ~ EL PRADO & RUFFIAN


~~AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME~~


DEFENDING CHAMP, DUSTY ~ ALL OUT TRYING TO MAKE 'HER-STORY'

THE ENERGIZER-BLUNNY WITH A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY RIGHT
THERE WITH EVERY CHANCE AT BEING THE 'VILLAIN' OF THE DAY
IF INDEED HE PREVENTS THE ''QUADRA-PEAT''

ROAMIN -&- PEEPTOAD JUST A TAIL LENGTH AWAY FROM STEALING
THE SHOW FROM THE FRONT RUNNING DYNAMIC DUO!

CIGARSHOP -&- REAL QUIET STILL WITH A CHANCE ~ IT'S THAT CLOSE
A SIX WAY RUN TO THE WIRE WHERE ANYTHING CAN & MAY HAPPEN!

DUSTY ~ ON HER WAY TO HISTORY OR ''HERSTORY''
BLUNNY ~ WHO MAY BE THE 'VILLAIN' TODAY
ROAMIN & PEEPTOAD ~ WINNER CIRCLE OR BOUQUET?
CIGARSHOP & REAL QUIET ~ MONEY OR NO MONEY?


AT THE WIRE = WAY TOO CLOSE TO CALL!
HOLD ALL TICKETS!
TOTE BOARD LIT UP LIKE AN XMAS TREE



THE CROWD IS GOING NUTS WITH WHAT IS ''ON THE LINE!''
A FILLY NOSE and A QUADRA-PEAT VICTORY
A COLT NOSE RUINING THE GLORY
A CLOSER RUINING BOTH OF THEIR HOPES AT THE WIRE!

'ONLY THE SHADOW KNOWS' WHICH NOSE
UNTIL THE STEWARDS KNOW
AND FINALLY THEY DO!
THE REACTION FROM THE CROWD IS ALMOST EERIE SILENCE!

BY THE SLIMMEST OF FELINE FILLY WHISKERS
DUSTY HAS LOST :'(

THE 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' HAS DENIED HISTORY / HERSTORY
A MIXED EMOTION OF VICTORY BY MANY

BY A SLENDER COLT NOSTRIL HAIR
ROAMIN HAS CAUGHT THE BOUQUET

PEEPTOAD, STEALING 'THE PRECIOUS'
APPEARS APPREHENSIVE
GLANCING ALL AROUND
PROBABLY ON THE LOOKOUT FOR GOLLUM

AND SO THE DAY ENDS IN GLORY FOR SOME
DRAMATIC DISAPPOINTMENT FOR OTHERS
BUT ~ AS WE ALL KNOW TOO OFTEN
THAT'S RACING -&- IT AIN'T OVER
TILL THAT STOUT LADY SINGS



AND TODAY WE THINK WE HEARD HER SINGING: ''O WOE IS ME''
